I've been here, just quiet with a few likes here and there. I have a prescription of Arcoxia coming today (probably). I searched the forum but there don't seem to be any recent posts about people using it.
Some report it works well but I also note there can be troubles stopping it. Crucially, does it work for most people?
I've been through HCQ, MTX, LEF all with no benefit. I wake most days at 4:00 with heat and joint pains. My diagnosis is inflammatory arthritis with OA being the main suspect. I appear to have symptoms of both OA & RA: difficulty getting hands moving in the morning with increasing pains in hands and feet as the day wears on, especially in the evening. No RA blood markers. ESR raised but not high.
I was on Etodolac but didn't notice any improvement, so onto Arconia. Just be interesting to hear what others have noticed with it.
